Miss TSA Minus The T And A


Chloe at Feministing analyzes a calendar now being sold in the wake of the TSA kerfluffle to make a larger point about supposedly sexy poses:

I appreciate these photos because they’re a reminder that, when you look at conventional definitions of “sexy” from a slightly different angle – in this case, from an angle that removes facial expression, hair, makeup, surrounding requisite beach or fur rug and leaves nothing but the body – those definitions start to look really ridiculous.

These poses are totally absurd, so unlikely to be struck during actual real-life sex, and this particular form of photography throws that into sharp relief.
